The Pope ‘Thing’ – Messier & Messier…

By on Sep 23, 2006 in Politics | 5 comments

So here I am, reading an article called ‘The Pope on Islam‘ by a Dominic Lawson. Lawson obviously has a vain view of himself, setting himself up as some intellectual man of courage, daring to speak out the things which others only dare think…etc..etc… He claims that, despite claims to the contrary from moderates on both sides, the religions are natural enemies with mutually offensive beliefs. He says “Christianity exists only on the basis that Jesus Christ is the son of God. Islam exists only on the basis that God dictated his laws to Mohamed and that the Koran contains the actual words of God” – ignoring completely the simple fact that both religions share one common notion, i.e. monotheism. He also fails to see that some issues are due to chronological issues. For example, Islam, coming after Christianity, clearly calls both Jews and...

“Meanwhile, the fuss about Gibson’s outburst has eclipsed less famous prophets, such as the Rev John Hagee. A Texan televangelist, Hagee recently told a meeting of Christian Zionists that the attacks on Lebanon are ‘a miracle of God’. Several senators attended his symposium, at which he received a personal message of praise from President Bush.” – Why are we crucifying Mel Gibson? Yup. Who’s paying attention?

As sort-of-promised previously, here is a pdf version of the entire article by Professor Charles Black. Feel free to copy, link, distribute, etc. at will. You might also be interested in this piece by Kurt Vonnegut: 06/17/06 — “Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.” A lot of people think Jesus said that, because it is so much the sort of thing Jesus liked to say. But it was actually said by Confucius, a Chinese philosopher, five hundred years before there was that greatest and most humane of human beings, named Jesus Christ. The Chinese also gave us, via Marco Polo, pasta and the formula for gunpowder. The Chinese were so dumb they only used gunpowder for fireworks. And everybody was so dumb back then that nobody in either hemisphere even knew that there was another one. We’ve sure come a long way since then. Sometimes I wish we hadn’t. I...

God Is One, Religions Are All Good, Repeat After Me….

Alright, right off the bat, let me say this; I do not, for a moment, believe that religion is what is being fought over. At best, misguided morality is at the steering wheel, and at worst, an economic lust and cultural hubris. However, it’s all over the media…Islam, Christianity, Judaism. It’s all over the place. You want to talk religion? Fine, then let’s talk religion. What do I see? The Judaeo-Christian world ‘evaluating‘ Islam on TV. The power players muttering to their people, under their breath, that all religions are one. And then – what do I hear? “You see, the people who are willing to send young boys to their death in the name of Allah, are now hiding out in caves.” Says Mr. Bush. The man whose government had no qualms about sending its’ own young boys to die in Vietnam – in a ‘Police Action’...
